I'm planning to build a diorama located at some Hungarian town in the end of WWII. I have tried to found some good pics of urban buildings (2...4 stories maybe) of that area at that time but I haven't been too lucky to found many of those from the Internet or from my own references.

So I decided to ask here if anyone knows some helpfull websites or has any pics that I could use as reference for planning these Hungarian urban buildings?

I want to scratchbuild my structures but appropriate pictures of custom model buildings are also welcome.

Hungarian urban architecture

August 4 2003, 12:29 AM 

Hello Tomi,

based on the fact that Hungary was a part of Austrian-Hungarian Empire from 17th century untill 1918, the development of urban architecture in Budapest followed the same patterns as in Vienna, Prague and other cities of the empire. Of course, the castles, palaces, cathedrals and other unique buildings differ (anyway, it is not a matter of your dio - is it?) but the ordinary city houses are very similar.

Rural architecture is very unique in Hungary, especially in Puszta (Hungarian steppe).

Take a look at some examples of architecture at:

Try the Google search for "Budapest", you will get much more.

HTH,

Petr
